Painter Martha Hayden will open her home in Sharon, Wisconsin, for her studio exhibition, Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22, from 12 to 5 p.m. The home is a historic Victorian built in the 1870s, which she has been gradually restoring since moving to Sharon in 1962.

More than 50 years of work will be on display including landscapes, painted in Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, France, on the ring of Kerry in Ireland, and in Vilnius, Lithuania, along with still lives, figure paintings, etchings and woodcuts.
